Good Location

Great location ! Easy to get around ! Rooms are very small so not good for family of 4 with luggage. Ended up getting 2 rooms since we were staying for a week ! Felt safe during the virus ! Breakfast was great each morning and whole staff very friendly! Self serve laundry service ! And great having a concierge and bell man !

Great Stay

Rooms were clean, concierge was extremely helpful in booking tours and shuttle to airport. Great location, was in easy walking distance to the subways and lots of restaurants. Pretty quiet considering it is located right off Times Square. Will stay here again!

Great location

Hotel is in a great location. Close to Times Square. Close to the metro and the bus station. Rooms are a decent size. Updated bathroom and good quality amenities. Comfortable beds and good pillows for the bed.

A lovely hotel

Stayed here for 4 night and had a lovely time. It was nice to find a New York hotel that included breakfast, the breakfast staff were always friendly and helpful. The reception staff were very helpful, especially when I had a problem and needed to use the courtesy phone in reception a couple of times. The hotel is in an ideal location just minutes walk from Times Square and many other attractions. A couple of days the hotel was very busy with groups, this never detracted from our stay

Great Location

We spent a week at the Hampton Inn. Room was clean, bed was comfortable and the room size (king) was good for NYC. We had a room on 4th floor facing the back so not much of a view, however this didn't bother us as it wasn't our first visit to NYC and it was good to have peace and quiet to sleep. Breakfast was ok with a good selection of options, however be sure to avoid between 8-10 as it does get busy. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Laundry facilities were good and everything was clean. Free coffee and hot chocolate in the room and hotel lobby. The location is right in the middle of midtown so really handy for first time visitors to NYC. We picked this hotel because it's close to major subways and Port Authority. Would definitely visit again.
